Deinze Yacht Club



In order to enjoy your stay as much as possible, please find hereby our guidelines:

Before mooring, or even while approaching, please announce your arrival to the DYC Marina Master: Tel ++ 32 (0) 495 255 620, or when no response, Tel ++ 32 (0) 496 080 280.

A convenient berth (number on the grey piles) for your overnight stay will be assigned as soon as possible. While waiting, mooring is allowed at a berth where the board (at dock level) is mentioning « VRIJ » ( = Free ), or if it is green. Red berths are either from members, or are reserved.

Upon registration by the DYC responsible dock charges are due : from €20 for 1 night / ship < 3.6 m width / max. 4 persons, including the cost for electricity (CEE, 230 V, 10 Amps.), and for handling domestic waste. A full price list can be found on this website.

Ask the Marina master to indicate you the convenient points for connecting to shore power.

Please sort out your waste according to composition, as indicated above the waste containers. It is prohibited to depose any waste other than daily domestic waste.

With your registration you will be communicated a personal code, giving access to the sanitary facilities (showers and toilets ) and allowing you to get in & out of the enclosed DYC site via the visitor gate at the right hand side of the club house. Please take care to always close the gate, and have your code on hand for entering again. This code is strictly personal and it is prohibited to communicate it to others.

Touristic information:

– DYC is very well situated on the junction between Brugge, Kortrijk, and Ghent ( the Schelde). Sailing from DYC to Ghent via Astene by the Touristic Leie (max. 7 km/h) you will discover an exceptional landscape, fixed on canvass by famous Latem painters.

– The centre of Deinze, with a lot of shops, a supermarket, several cafés and restaurants, is situated at 500 m downstream of DYC. The railway station is at 10 min. from the centre.

– Just in front of DYC a large park is situated, with ponds, a small zoo and a playing-garden for children. Open every day from sunrise tot sunset, or 10 pm at the latest.

– Touring the area by bicycle (via well signed routes, see Tourist Info in the centre of town), or just following the Touristic Leie downstream up to the castle of Ooidonck, bike route nrs 5-6-9-11-12-90 ) will lead you into the heart of this vast island of rural silence.

– The municipal swimming pool (at 15 min. walk)  is also equipped with a pool for children, a slide, bubble bath and steam cabin. It opens at 17 hrs daily.

Lines of conduct :

– Please respect the calm at the marina, both during day and night.

– Limiting the speed of your boat ( max. 5 km/h ) over the whole length of the marina will avoid troublesome wash of waves, causing inconvenience to the moored boats and occupants.

– All regulations and laws, dictated by all official authorities, fluvial, regional and federal, and the specific regulations of the DYC, are in force and to comply with. DYC rules are listed on the information boards next to the club house.

– It is strictly prohibited to take in fuel, to carry out or have carried out technical maintenance and repair or paint works. By absolute necessity or distress, contact the Marina Master beforehand, who will then decide on an eventual authorisation, and which procedures to follow strictly.
